Final Fantasy 7 Remake Gets First New Trailer in Years, More Teased for E3

Final Fantasy 7 Remake Gets First New Trailer in Years, More Teased for E3

Sony's PlayStation Direct teased Square Enix's highly anticipated remake.

Today Sony hosted the latest episode of PlayStation State of Play. The second episode of Sony's PlayStation livestream (aka its Nintendo Direct) focused more on big reveals in preparation for E3, including a major teaser for the Final Fantasy 7 Remake.

While today's Final Fantasy 7 Remake teaser was brief, Square Enix is promising a bigger reveal at E3 2019 in Los Angeles, CA. It's the first look at Final Fantasy 7 Remake gamers got since its big reveal at E3 2015.

The teaser offered a new look at Square Enix's Final Fantasy 7 Remake, which we haven't seen much of since its 2015 announcement. There's some new footage of combat, the world, and some famous faces you'll definitely recognize.

Although Final Fantasy 7 Remake was announced four years ago, the project has been ramping up development in recent years. Project director Tetsuya Nomura called Final Fantasy 7 Remake is main project after finishing Kingdom Hearts 3 earlier this year.

Full development details are still a mystery, Nomura said development on Final Fantasy 7 Remake was further along than the media has suggested. Square Enix recently announced Naoki Hamaguchi as co-director on the Remake project.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake is easily Square Enix's most highly anticipated project. Though the company has been making plenty of behind-the-scenes moves. Square Enix announced that Final Fantasy 14 director Naoki Yoshida and Final Fantasy 15 developer Luminous Studio are both working on next-gen projects.

We'll have to wait until E3 for the full reveal, but in the meantime check out our Final Fantasy 7 Remake guide for more of our coverage.
